Do you think its been a good idea, the supermarkets actively withdawing plastic bags?
I wasn't sure but am in agreement now!
Yes I am in agreement on withdrawl.
Take a look at "Walmart" in the USA (ASDA in the UK) nearly all use paper bags.
If paper is good enough in the US it's good enough here.
In the days when we had nothing we had fun.
If tomorrow starts without me, remember I was here.
Keeping it real!

As long as they give us something such as the long paper bags that they use in the USA
Do u have to pay for the paper bags in the US ?
It just seems like they wanna make even more money by selling their GREEN bags instead

Updated weekly with old and new pics.
Of course, Supermarkets are a relatively new idea. When I was a youg child (1960s) there were no supermarkets. We used the Co-op and they delivered the stuff in boxes. The only supermarket I remember at that time was "Lennons" and it was the size of an ordinary shop and not a superstore. So supermarkets and plastic bags go together as there has never been an alternative. Maybe internet shopping and home deliveries is the answer.
Anyway you'd need a bag the size of a coal-man's sack to carry your weekly 'shop' these days!
And don't get me started on the 'serve yerself' checkouts (I refuse to use 'em),
they'll soon have us unloading the lorries and stacking the bloody shelves next.
Never put anyone on a pedestal... THEY'LL LOOK DOWN ON YOU!
